2005 Lexus LS430 ProblemsRear Window Sunshade Fails and Makes Grinding Noise
The motor for the rear window sunshade in the 2001-2006 Lexus LS430 is known to fail. When this occurs, the sunshade will not extend down the window, and a grinding noise is heard until the motor fails as well.
Replacement of the sunshade assembly is necessary to correct this failure, however, removing the fuse for the sunshade will stop the motor from making the irritating grinding noise.
Poor quality low speed transmission shifting may be noted. Our technicians tell us updated transmission software is available which may correct this concern.
Vehicles equipped with premium Mark Levinson stereo may experience no sound or volume that goes to maximum level by itself. An improved amplifier is available to rectify this problem.
